A publisher is looking into plagiarism allegations against Monica Crowley


Publisher HarperCollins said it is looking into plagiarism allegations against Monica Crowley, who President-elect Donald Trump chose for a national security communications role in his administration. 

CNN Money reportedly found more than 50 examples of plagiarism when reviewing Crowley's June 2012 book, "What The (Bleep) Just Happened." 

The report says that Crowley plagiarized from a number of sources, copying from news articles, columnists, think tanks and Wikipedia with little to no changes. 

HarperCollins spokeswoman Tina Andreadis said the publisher has no comment but is looking into the allegations. 

Here's a look at some of the allegedly plagiarised portions of her book. 

Trump's transition team released a statement saying they will be standing by Crowley. 

"HarperCollins -- one of the largest and most respected publishers in the world -- published her book which has become a national best-seller," a transition spokesperson told CNN Money. "Any attempt to discredit Monica is nothing more than a politically motivated attack that seeks to distract from the real issues facing this country."

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
